Amidst the ongoing Coronavirus lockdown, the entire globe relies on online shopping from food to medicines, clothes to cosmetics and everything.

However, the online shopping has increased Amazon’s revenue by 26% during coronavirus pandemic.

Amazon Chief executive Officer (CEO) Jeff Bezos is predicted to become the world’s first trillionaire. Despite the increase in his company’s revenue, he refuses to increase his workers’ salaries by even $2.

Moreover, Amazon is giving branded merchandise to say thanks to the warehouse workers working during novel Coronavirus.

Amazon works told the international news source that Amazon has given “thank you” t-shirts to the warehouse workers.

A worker shared a picture of the t-shirt in which “Thank you” was written on the front. The back reads, “Together, we’ll deliver.”

Workers said that they received t-shirts last week. They were placed in a room and were asked to choose the shirt as per the size they want.

The news had come out as the giant e-commerce Company announced it would reduce $2 per hour wage. Workers seemed unhappy with this new move. One worker said, “With states opening up and over 21 cases at our warehouse so far and at least one death at the Indianapolis warehouse, it’s a slap in the face,”
